With the 169th Pick of the 2009 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers Select Frank Summers, RB, UNLV

I am trying to contain my excitement for this pick, but to be perfectlly honest I am extremely giddy to see Frank "The Tank" Summers sporting black and gold next season.  Summers is a 5'11, 245lb bruising running back from UNLV that had a productive college career.  Summers spent two season playing junior college football, then transferred to UNLV and shattered numerous records at the school, including leading the team in rushing and receiving touchdowns last season.

Summers' will certainly draw comparisons to former Steelers like Barry Foster and Jerome Bettis, and hopefully he will be able to live up to the high expectations that those of us who have been following him during the draft process have created.




Check out this video as well for some insight into Summers and some cool footage from High School when Summers also handled kick off duties for his team.
